Event Highlights

MKE It Back

Every year we're grateful to the dozens of downtown businesses who donate over 20,000 food items and prizes to celebrate the downtown workforce.

This year, we invite you to turn the tables and show some love to your favorite downtown restaurant, bar, shop or service provider this week. We're leading the way by funding thousands of dollars in downtown purchases and giving them away to you, the downtown workforce. 

As we #MKEitBack together, let's remember and support the businesses that make downtown Milwaukee a fantastic place to work. When we can gather again, we'll raise a glass to the resilient spirit of our collective downtown community.
